Founded in 1884 in the Swiss Jura, Léon Breitling devoted himself to the development of the wrist chronograph. To this day, Breitling is a great master of this complication and one of the last remaining independent and family-owned Swiss watch brands.
Thanks to its high-quality entirely Swiss made products and constant quest for innovation, the brand accompanied the boom of competitive sports, of the automobile, as well as the first feats of the aviation pioneers.
A leader in the field of mechanical chronographs, Breitling is also in the forefront of electronics in watchmaking. The brand has indeed established itself in the vanguard of innovation by creating the Emergency, the world’s first wristwatch equipped with an authentic integrated dual frequency personal locator beacon as well as the Exospace B55, the instrument of the future, designed for aviation professionals.
Breitling asserts itself as a compendium of boldness, innovation and performance designed to share every challenge – on land, at sea and in the air. “You simply don’t become official supplier to world aviation by chance”.
